Some dinosaurs are tall. Some dinosaurs are very small.
Some dinosaurs walk on two legs, others on four.
And some dinosaurs look sweet while others look scary.
This colorful parade of dinosaurs is a visual feast for very young fans of prehistorical creatures. The simple text and bold illustrations are ideal for preschoolers who are fascinated with these magnificent animals.
